One of the features that many users missed when the guys from Cupertino introduced the world to the new iPhone 6 was wireless charging . This very useful feature is already present in some competing smartphones, and although Apple has decided not to include it in its new flagships, today we bring you a way to make it possible for a very affordable price that becomes part of our curiosity section.
A few days ago we saw several professional photographers use several iPhone 6 Plus to cover an important event at the White House. Something that caught our attention, and is that although the camera included offers a really good quality, it is still surprising that it was used for an event in such an important place.
Surely there will come a time when wireless charging cradles will be everywhere and the technology will have greatly improved the user experience of the smartphone in question . Until that time, we will have to make do with the options currently on the market, although as we said before, in the case of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus it is not yet included as standard.
In a few minutes your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus will have support for wireless charging
If you are a user of one of the iPhone 6 models and want to add the wireless charge, you can do it in just a few minutes and best of all, with very little investment . Here’s how to get it for just $20.
Ewan Spence, editor of Forbes magazine, recently published a simple guide explaining how to add wireless charging support to the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It should be noted, however, that is also compatible with other smartphone models such as the iPhone 5s, 5c and 5 .
Just a few simple steps and wireless charging is available on your iPhone 6. Best of all, doesn’t require any permanent modifications , so you can remove it and put it back in as you see fit. Best of all, doesn’t require any permanent modifications , so you can take it out and put it in as you please. Also, before we start explaining anything, we’d like to remind you that using chargers that are not official or approved by Apple may cause damage to the device and even void the warranty in the most extreme cases.
The “trick” for including this useful feature in the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is to get two very simple components: One is the “Qi Wireless Charging Card” , a kind of charging card, and the other is the “Qi Compatible Wireless Charging Pad” , a compatible charging platform. Both are available on eBay, the first for about $10 and the second even cheaper.
The Qi Wireless card plugs into the Lightning Connector of the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and sticks to the back of the iPhone . The second component, the Qi Wireless charging pad, is a kind of pad where you have to put your smartphone to charge it wirelessly, as Ewan Spencer at Forbes explains.
The iPhone 6 Plus is becoming a very important device
The fact that the new iPhone 6 can be charged wirelessly can be very useful , because if you have to use it while it’s charging you don’t have the limitation of the cable length. This way, it will be more comfortable to use the smartphone while sitting at the office table or on the couch at home.
Finally, we would like to point out that the iPhone 6 Plus is gaining a lot of ground within the professional area , becoming a very important device. Last week, United Airlines will supply its in-flight employees with this 5.5-inch model to improve service and the customer experience.
How about adding wireless charging to iPhone 6? Do you think Apple should include the feature in future versions?
